Hi stampers! Happy Saturday! Hope you're all having a wonderful start to your weekend! I've got a challenge card to share today! I really liked the color challenge this week over at Create with Connie and Mary that used the colors daffodil delight, lucky limeade, and island indigo! It's a perfect spring color combo! I had lots of ideas for this one but I'm sharing the first one I made today. When looking through my (many) stamp sets I settled on my friend because I thought the lucky limeade would work GREAT with the flower/leaves image and that's exactly what I did. I stamped the image with versamark then embossed with clear powder and sponged over it all with lucky limeade ink. It pops so well!
Stamps: My friend, pursuit of happiness
Paper: Whisper white, daffodil delight, lucky limeade, island indigo, attic boutique DSP
Ink: Lucky limeade, versamark, white craft ink
Accessories: Clear and white embossing powder, itty bitty punch pack, basic pearls, everyday enchantment ribbon and brad pack (SAB)
I also really like the use of the white embossing powder on the sentiment on the dark cardstock, it also pops out really well! I'm on a mission to cut and USE up a lot of my DSP so I cut into some of the attic boutique DSP (and I need to use way more since I accidentally ordered two pack, ugh) to make a little banner. For my little flowers I bent up the petals and added some leaves with the green organdy ribbon from the SAB freebie pack. Mini glue dots work perfect for adhering the ribbon and the flowers! It's my favorite adhesive for small little details.
It turned out to be a very simple little card but with the bright colors it really packs a punch! I'm off to cut up more DSP:-)
PS...I'm editing this to address something I forgot earlier and then my memory was jogged by Jodi's comment:-) I was lazy and didn't use my embossing buddy on my first card and it was a disaster! Always use your embossing buddy ESPECIALLY when white embossing on dark cardstock:-) It really makes for a much cleaner image. Don't be lazy like me! I pulled it out for the second one (and that's the one you see in the picture) and it was much better. Now, as of right now you cannot order the little buddy as SU is having a problem with the manufacturer but if you have one, USE IT!!! And hopefully SU can get back on track and have it available soon!
